The Secret to Strengthening Your Willpower When You Learn Languages

The Secret to Strengthening Your Willpower When You Learn Languages

Hey Alizah here, today I’d like to give you a simple yet powerful tool to make progress and achieve your language learning goals. One of the keys to language learning is consistency. You should be learning every single day and keep it up for the long haul. But how can you make sure that you won’t give up and lose all the progress you’ve made? The secret is to focus on your motivation and willpower.

I like to define motivation as the fuel to your language learning, because without enough you’ll never get started and even if you do, you won’t last very long. A good way to ensure that you will always have a full tank and jumpstart your motivation is to write down all the reasons why you want to learn a language to grab a pen and paper and write down everything you’ll gain by learning and knowing a new language.

Project yourself into happy situations where you speak the language with ease. You take pleasure in learning the language. Imagine how others will perceive you. How all the ways that your life will be better. Be concrete. Why not motivate yourself to do the exercise right now it’s incredibly effective. Even if you’re feeling very ambitious right now, this  might wane with time so looking back on this list will help fuel your motivation.

Here are some of my personal reasons for why I want to learn a language: I will be able to travel on my own, I will get a better and higher paying job, I will  impress my friends, I will meet amazing people, I will be more attractive, I will be smarter, I will have access to more sources of knowledge, I will be able to  watch movies in their original format.

There are hundreds of reasons to learn a language. Don’t be afraid to get personal with your list. Another tip is to put this list somewhere you can see it like your nightstand or on your refrigerator. This will keep you motivated to learn everyday and put you on the right track for improvement. Trust me, I promise it works wonders. See you soon and happy learning. On your way out don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel to watch more informative videos.
